I was in the mood to bake last night but completely out of eggs and way too lazy to go to the store to get some. So I found an easy recipe for eggless sugar cookies. I made my own version by adding vanilla extract and a sprinkling of cinnamon atop each cookie. Here is my rendition of the eggless sugar cookie:
– 8oz butter
– 1 cup of sugar
– 1.5 cup of flour
– 1/2 tsp baking soda
– 1/2 tsp salt
– Cream the butter and sugar (I added in about 1 tsp of vanilla extract during this step)
– Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt and then mix it in with the butter/sugar combo
– Roll batches of dough into small balls and place on a non-greased cookie sheet (I used an OXO ice cream scoop to measure out perfect portions and stuck them on a silpat, which I highly recommend)
– Press each dough ball lightly with a fork, which has been dipped in sugar (I changed this step and just sprinkled a little bit of sugar and cinnamon atop each ball without pressing it down)
Here are the cookie balls pre-bake (350 degrees for about 9 minutes)
And here they are fresh out of the oven. The cookies came out super thin and super crisp with a shortbread taste and texture. Fine by me!
Get baked with me again next week! Adios.
